Another Bloggiesta has come to an end...I'm bummed, but feeling pretty good. I got a ton done and I always end up finishing these events feeling not only super productive, but also energized about blogging!

Time spent during day 3: 9hrs.
Current running time: 26 hrs.

All in all it was one productive weekend and I already have another list of things to do for the next Bloggiesta, which will be March 29-31, 2013. Now I am excited to visit everyone and see how much they got done and see if I should be adding more to the new list!!!



  1. I feel like I worked a lot on stuff for Bloggiesta but didn't get nearly as much done as I wanted to. I'm spending the rest of the evening try to finish up a couple of things. You got a lot done! I'd like to see look into drop down boxes, too. Maybe next time we'll get to that.

  2. Wow! You accomplished loads! Well done!
    I loved the organisation mini challenge :)
    I still need to write a wrap up post!

  3. Very impressive list with so much done! I love the finish line graphic. I should have used that in my wrap-up post!

  4. wow, I thought I had done a lot, but your are really the Bloggiesta queen. I'm especially impressed by the number of reviews you wrote, I'm so slow at those!
    I love your About me page, and am happy for you you are married also to an avid reader. My husband and I also spend lots of time reading, and I can't imagine what it would be to have a non-reading spouse, though alas several book bloggers are in that case.
    here is my bloggiesta recap:


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
